    Subject[PATCH v3] powerpc: Force page alignment for initrd reserved memory

    When using 64K pages with a separate cpio rootfs, U-Boot will align
    the rootfs on a 4K page boundary. When the memory is reserved, and
    subsequent early memblock_alloc is called, it will allocate memory
    between the 64K page alignment and reserved memory. When the reserved
    memory is subsequently freed, it is done so by pages, causing the
    early memblock_alloc requests to be re-used, which in my case, caused
    the device-tree to be clobbered.

    This patch forces the reserved memory for initrd to be kernel page
    aligned, and adds the same range extension when freeing initrd.
